Announcement for the Coral Pink Color :

The Coral Pink marble wrist rest is in collaboration with the GMK Coral GB, which is now live :
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=101926.0

20% of the 65 USD (=13 USD) will be donated to the Coral Reef Alliance for each Coral Pink Marble wrist rest sold, proof of donation will be provided at the end of the GB.
The Coral Pink marble wrist rest is a perfect color match for this keycaps set and it is a great opportunity to try to help the threatened coral reefs.

This GB will be a raffle and will end at the same time as the GMK Coral GB.
28 pieces will be directly available and shipped in November, if there is a high interest for this color (60+ ), I can order another run of production, but quantity of the base material is currently limited for this one and it would take about 3 months before shipping.

Update 11/09:
I received all the marbles for the passed orders.
I still have to apply a protective coating on them and do the packaging.

Thank you for the interest and the support !

First GB History :
=======================================================
The project that started with the IC here will finally go live :
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=99674.0

I always wanted to bring a new material to keyboards : the marble !
A noble and beautiful material that is rarely used for keyboards.
As I live in Taiwan, we have an important industry and local resources for marble, so I decided to give a try with the local manufacturers.
After months of preparation, I can finally offer a first batch to sell.
Today, it will only be 10 pieces to ensure that all is going right, then at the end of June there should be another 10 to 15 pieces.

As a first small batch, I only have one color : white and one size : TKL (36cm)
If success is there, more colors and sizes will be available in the future.


About the wrist rests :
- Size : 36cm long x 8cm large x 1.6cm thick
14.17inch x 3.15 inch x 0.63 inch
Perfect size for TKL, also good for smaller keyboards.
- Weight : 1.3 Kg
- Color: White mixed with grey/black/white and eventually some artifacts.
- Price : $65USD + shipping (US $35, Europe $30, Asia $20)
If you order 2, you pay only the shipping for one. (2 is the limit of how many you can order)
- Shipping date : Products will be shipped before end of June, so it will be fast.

/!\ Important :
It is a slab of natural stone, each piece is unique and different.
There are photos here below with the most atypical pieces.
It is shaped stones (not CNC), so the pieces can have small imperfections (I do QC all) and size tolerances are higher.

You can find many more photos in the 2 albums below:

Update 06/10:
So the round 1 for the 10 pieces is closed and I received the payments.
Thank you all for the support ! It had more success that I would have ever expected  :D

If you still have interest in this project, there will be a second round at the end of June for 10-15 pieces.


Update 06/17:
I shipped the first package last Saturday with EMS as that destination was not covered by SF Express.
Soon all the other orders will be shipped :)

Update 06/23:
All packages have been shipped and tracking number sent via Paypal.
I hope you will enjoy your marble wrist rest.
Thank you for the support !

Update 07/04: Small change of the date!
Round 1 went smoothly and pieces were received:
https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/c78b1m/pastel_pink_acrylic_tofu_60_with_white_led_back/


Update 07/07, Round 2 Open:
Round 2 of the Marble Wrist Sale is starting.
I still have 12 pieces remaining.

Update 07/07, Round 2 Close:
Thank you very much for the orders !
I sent the first invoices, 48h is given to pay for them, then people on the waiting list will get their turn.
The waiting list is short, those who haven't received the invoice, there is still a chance :)

Update 07/26:
Almost everything is ready and shipping of the marble wrist rest should be on 08/01.
Thank you for your patience!

Update 08/07:
All marbles have been shipped and delivered successfully.
This closes this chapter for this first GB.
I am already planning a next GB with higher quantities, all 60% and different colors : white, black, green and pink ! marble.

These look so good, been waiting for the R2 (or leftovers, as they may be).

Couple of questions:

1) They are flat and not tilted, is that right? Looks that way from the pics. Totally fine, though enjoy a bit of a slant on my wristies when I can get one. No biggie but just curious. (Would be hard to get a slant in stone anyway, right?)

2) Sounds like the 12 that are left will be raffled or FCFS? Can you verify how that'll work?

3) If we swing and miss (or sleep through the launch) will there an official (bigger) R2 in the future?

Thanks! :)

Hi!

1. This design is flat, it is indeed more difficult to get a nice angled surface on stones, but not impossible. I just wanted to go easy on the first design :)

2. It will be FCFS, and it just started :)  Still considering the pro/con of going to raffle mode, but I think my products are not famous enough to do raffles.

3. Yes, I am planning to do bigger batches if the interest continue to be here.

Thank you!

Is it slightly curved or is it a flat piece?

Perhaps too late for this but is there any option for a less rounded edge? I like the aesthetic of the marble but those front corners are too round for my taste.

The design for this series cannot be changed anymore. But I will definitely change the design from time to time in the next series.

If you have any example of shape you would like to have, please, let me know.
